Aurora over the cabin.
(Click for Flickr)

Aurora stream directly above the cabin, Thursday night.

"Isn't this enough?
Just... this... world?
Just this... beautiful, complex, wonderfully unfathomable natural world?
How does it so fail to hold our attention
that we have to diminish it with the invention
of cheap, manmade myths and monsters?
If you're so into Shakespeare
Lend me your ear:
'To gild refined gold
To paint the lily
To throw perfume on the violet
Is just fucking silly.'
Or something like that."

From Storm by Tim Minchin
